Geneteka is the website of the Polish Genealogical Society and has free, online Polish indexes included baptisms, marriages, deaths, military records, and more. They have more than 22 million free, indexed Polish records.

Geneteka shows breakdowns of birth, death, and marriage indexes from different regions if you’re interested in the depth of data from an area of research.

To start a free search of Polish indexes, select a region from their map of Poland or region links in the right-side column, and you’ll open an index search window for records in that area. Follow the prompts and use if instructions don’t translate thoroughly. (Hint: Polish: Nazwisko=English: Surname; Polish: Imię=English: First Name).
